    Lights are on but nobodyís home

    I have a Toshiba Sat Pro L500-1VW returned to me the other day from a member of staff, who didnít mention it was faulty. Surprise!

    I come to turn it on today, the lights are on A/C, Battery, Power etc, but nothing comes up. Tried with and without battery (which has solved this in the past), tried removing various bits and pieces, RAM etc. No beeps, no whirs, but the HDD sounds as if it tried to start up, but then doesnít.

    Any thoughts

    Do you get any kind of post? If not could it be a faulty screen? Maybe try connecting an external monitor and see if you get anything on that.

    Its now suddenly working, been trying for half an hour, just plugged everything back up as was after posting this thread, now Working….


    Although to reply to your much appreciated responses.
    No Post, no beeps, tried external monitor-nothing... Very strange, it's now booted up fine, so sign of an error.

    Any thoughts anyone
